Bending cookies while they're hot

Pei | Dec 14, 2006 08:26 PM

Can I bend cookies while they're hot?

Instinct says yes, since it's done with tuile and fortune cookies.

Here's my overly-ambitious, insanity-induced idea: I want some of my gingerbread men to be able to sit on balls of frosting on top of my cake.

So once they're baked, I would bend their knees and put something under them so the men look like they're lying down with their knees propped up. Then after they cool I can pick them up and make them sit on things.

Too crazy? Or just crazy enough?
